Wigmore Hall (About)

Wigmore Hall, Great Britain


Widely-recognised as one of the world’s leading venues, Wigmore Hall is the London home for the world’s most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians. It presents approximately 450 concerts per season, including chamber and vocal recitals, jazz, early and contemporary music and choral works.

Now approaching its 115th birthday, Wigmore Hall is increasingly influential in the contemporary music scene through commissioning at least 30 new works every season and has an unparalleled reputation for fostering the careers of talented young artists.

Renowned for its intimacy, responsive acoustic and its Arts and Crafts interior, Wigmore Hall has a capacity of 552 seats, but draws in audiences from far and wide through its enterprising use of digital media and its ambitious learning and outreach programmes; these go beyond concert audiences to embrace schools, nurseries, hospitals, community centres and care homes.
